PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Writing About Reading unit is a great alternative to traditional book reports. You may decide to incorporate letter writing while teaching these lessons (as I have done), but it works just as well to write book reviews. I love this unit because it combines close reading, discussion of literature, and written response in a persuasive format.

This product includes ten detailed lesson plans, corresponding writing goal posters, writing exemplars, writing rubric, and various other writing tools.

Lesson 1: Talking about characters
Lesson 2: Writing down a conversation
Lesson 3: Showing character traits with examples
Lesson 4: Evaluating character decisions
Lesson 5: Adding more (and using transitions)
Lesson 6: Adding quotes to support opinions
Lesson 7: Writing a conclusion
Lesson 8: Evaluating our writing
Lesson 9: Final revisions
Lesson 10: Celebration!

I hope you and your students LOVE writing their opinions about books and characters!
